What are your responsibilities at Eastbrook?
I am the Senior Pastor at Eastbrook. My responsibilities include regular teaching in weekend services, overall vision and direction, staff leadership, and guidance for the church council.

What do you love about what you do?
I love studying and teaching from the Bible. There is nothing like seeing the Holy Spirit transform lives through God’s truth. I enjoy working with an amazing staff team here at Eastbrook. God has brought an amazingly gifted and humble ministry team here at our church. In all of these things, I am most amazed by the ways I get to see people’s individual lives and families transformed by the power of God. I could go on and on. I love what I do!
